for capital programming across the city in light of the kinds of conditions our transportation system is in now as well as the new growth, both in terms of residents and jobs in the city. and so the scope of the task force work does not address the operating deficits nor does it solve all of the problems that have been identified. about $10 billion have been identified as a need for transportation. and this leaves a gap of 6.3 billion. the task force identified what we believe is required in terms of infrastructure and we'll be proposed some new revenue sources to fund a portion of that gap. so the three recommendations that will be brought forward from the task force is to invest in programs with the greatest impact to first maintain the current transportation system which we found in great disrepair and enhance the system and sfand -- expand the city system to meet new growth and also set to pursue three new revenue services combined to address that significant portion of that gap and as well as to continue to support and seek additional state and federal funding sources to s
